When it comes to our parks, streets, traffic intersections, and other public property, it’s really very simple — the placement of signs anywhere in the public right of way (a distance generally within 6 – 7 feet of the curb) or other public property, other than by a governmental entity, is illegal at all times.

Please call City of Atlanta Customer Service at 404.546.0311 to graffiti or tags on PUBLIC* property. Provide a description of the graffiti and its location, noting the nearest intersection.
*At this time, we do not have information regarding private property.
